    T-Mobile "pulse" - Google Android Handset (Huawei U8220) - Ama

    Who pays the cost price for a smartphone?... the mugs who *think* they're getting it "free" on some ridiculously long-term contract, do. No, I didn't say I *have* an iPhone, I said I bought one in June - I took it back - you *assumed* I still have it, which I don't. Hmmm - jailbreak a closed...

    T-Mobile "pulse" - Google Android Handset (Huawei U8220) - Ama

    iPhone 3GS = £440, Pulse = £147. iPhone = proprietary & restricted - Android = open and fully customisable. I know which I prefer; £300 in the pocket, and not being tied down to Apple's nonsensical "you do what we tell you" attitude - also, the laggyness is due to the v1.5 that is on there I...

    T-Mobile "pulse" - Google Android Handset (Huawei U8220) - Ama

    Hi people!. I just wanted to evangelise a little about the whole Google Android platform, but especially the UK T-mobile "Pulse" handset, which I picked up yesterday at my local T-mobile store, for the bargain price of £147. This is a fully fledged Android handset, complete with WIFI...

    Xbox 360 - Is This A Good Deal?

    I find blasphemy MORE offensive to be honest, and are you *seriously* implying that abbreviating an insult, lessens its' meaning or impact?. :rolleyes: Righty ho... lol.

    Xbox 360 - Is This A Good Deal?

    Saying "FOR F*CKS SAKE" in caps, is extreme rudeness, to say the *very* least. Okay, moving on :)

    How To Unbrick Your Wiz (Retail Wiz - V1.1.0 Firmware)

    I was told to do this - cannot remember where - it just said to hold the switch down, otherwise the console would power itself off, if inactive. I am very glad you have fixed your bricked Wiz - I have made a decision not to be such a hasty (and aggressive) responder to posts from now on, so...

    Xbox 360 - Is This A Good Deal?

    Did you need to react in *such* a hostile and dismissive manner?. I didn't realise this was Wiz > general, I thought it was General. Simple manners can make or break someone's mood, and potential future relationship with you. You may need my help one day - trust me, this is the voice of...

    How To Unbrick Your Wiz (Retail Wiz - V1.1.0 Firmware)

    This whole effort is just one gigantic FAIL. Nope, didn't work, after "set line /dev/ttyUSB0" and "set speed 19200" and then "transmit UART.nb0" Here is the MES-DNW source code: SOURCE See what I can do, if anyone else will help?

    How To Unbrick Your Wiz (Retail Wiz - V1.1.0 Firmware)

    You're welcome - I could not have done this without you!. Oh, so when I have done: cat UART.nb0 > /dev/ttyUSB0 What do I do next, to trigger the UART menu?

    How To Unbrick Your Wiz (Retail Wiz - V1.1.0 Firmware)

    I wouldn't know about kermit, and I'm on Ubuntu 9.10 here - had to borrow the family laptop (dual boot XP/Ubuntu - they REFUSE to use Ubuntu :( ) to do this. I don't know enough about serial file transfer, so I'm playing it safe until I am knowledgeable enough to do it *all* in GNU/Linux!).

    How To Unbrick Your Wiz (Retail Wiz - V1.1.0 Firmware)

    Yeah, I hacked up my own (and only) cable to make the serial cable, but what's the fun if you don't play a bit of risk?. ;) . I have a friend in the mobile industry, who has some spare Samsung E810 cables, so I'll re-build myself a proper pair - one normal, one serial, once I get them. Hey, it's...
